It’s no secret that New Orleans is a rich, diverse, artistic community with a contagious spirit. As stated in www.entrepreneur.com by Sara Max; a freelance writer that has covered business and personal finance for more than a decade; “It’s impossible to talk about the startup scene in Louisiana without mentioning the state's most famous city: New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz, the epicenter of good times and food, and – in recent years – a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity.” New Orleans also has proved itself as a fashion hub with the help of events such as Fashion Week New Orleans, attention from WWD a global fashion publication and the hit TV show Project Runway.
American Express is a global services company, providing customers with access to products, insights and experiences that enrich lives and build business success. The company recognizes the vast amount of talent in New Orleans and is eager to lend a supportive hand to as many up-and-coming artisans as possible through this new incentive program. From culinary to music; to film and fashion; #PassionProject is on the hunt to for that next undiscovered hidden gem.
